piece separately in cloth lined compartments inside your jewelry chest. Do not expose your silver to bleach and ammonia found in
household chemicals nor to chlorinated water in your
swimming pool. They are not friendly at all to silver.

The best way to keep your jewelry sparkling is to wear it often. Tarnish build-up is a natural tendency of Silver and periodic
cleaning will keep your Silver pieces shiny and beautiful. Use liquid cleaning solutions found in our ABRANO web site and in our
store and / or ABRANO Polishing Cloth, packaged with white gloves to keep your hands clean, also found in the ACCESSORIES
